Clean Eating Guide

An easy to-pick-up-and-go clean eating guide (sample menu included)

Clean eating series is focused on lean eating habits that compliment a high intensity and active workout schedule. The main objective is to eat only as much as you need to power your days. Any more than that is unnecessary and could be considered a weight-gaining or maintenance strategy.

To be calorie deficit is to have a shortage in the amount of calories consumed relative to the amount of calories required for maintenance of current body weight. You need to digest less calories.
Think of the energetic lean option as a secondary option to help ease into calorie deficit eating.
